Exercise: I have not been getting to it, I got to get on the ball.

Short again today.

Night folks

City

City: Took a trip to Grants,NM today for a few things, food items, laundry, propane and to pick up my mail from the post office. It was a good morning to run the roads, seeing as it was too cold outside for much. Nippy big time this morning, and coolish today.

Exercise: is off for today. It is cold today and my knees can use a rest.

Bird: Seen this Mountain Bluebird hanging around outside today. I enjoy having these guys around πŸ™‚

House Batteries: My batteries are pretty much done for, I think. This fall I will have to replace them. They are on their 6th year, so I can’t expect them to do much better. I am not getting them charged during the day. It being cloudy about half the day everyday is not helping. Good thing that I’m going to be hooked up to power this summer. Maybe I’ll move into a site with power for a couple days before I leave here.

A move, not far

Moved: My new location is not that far from my old one, maybe 25 miles. I’m on the north side of Lake Havasu now at a spot I stayed at on the way down, back in Oct. Here is the new place. My next move will be in no more than two weeks and I’m not sure where I’ll end up but it will be a big move to the east, well compare to this move anyways πŸ˜›

Exercise/stretching: No exercise for a couple of days, the knees 😦 I’ll give the knees a break. I did a little stretching yesterday and we’ll see about today.

Rain in the desert! : Yes, we got just a little rain, hopefully it will settle the dust some. Later update, not enough to settle the dust, LOL.

Wild flower: Took this shot the other day, just goofing around.

Weather: It is very cool here for April, which is okay, seeing as it could be really hot by now. I bet one day soon it will be too hot for my taste here in Havasu, probably one day next week.

Less dust

Weight 185.8: ( Bruce where is that wide angle lens? ) LOL, Bruce is the friend that offer to loan me his wide angle lens to take a picture of my belly to hang on the refrigerator door, to remind me not to eat so much. My diet is in a pretty good place right now, but there must be a way to bring my appetite down just a tab bit more. I need foods that have little or no carbs and are very filling. Ideals anyone?

Winter: Man, I’ve not seen any of that this year! I have had my T-shirt and shorts on since the start of last summer. This is without a doubt, the best winter (weather wise) I’ve had since I started RVing.

My Move: It was a fine ideal! As I said I only moved about 1000 feet but it is making a big difference with the dust. I can see the site I was in before moving and there are lots of off-road vehicles running around while I have had none go by my new site πŸ™‚ , this is so much better.

Humming Feeder: Today I decided to put out the Humming feeder, hopefully the wind won’t be too bad.
Update: Took only an hour or so to get my first Humming Bird.

Exercise: No, not today. The knees are resting πŸ™‚

Wind and cold

OK, looks like you guys have something over a week to listen to me fuss about the weather, so you all can hope with me that it gets better soon and I can stop fussing and you won’t have to hear me fuss about itΒ  😯 !Β  Wind and cold is not a combination of things that I like,Β  because RVs are not the tightest sealed things around and the cold air gets in. The cool air seems to come right though the walls. Can’t wait for this little cold snap to get pass. Brrrrrrrr, I say!

I feel like putting on a coat and hat and going for a good long walk but the knee says, “no”. I will have to obey 😦 I just hate it when my body parts tell me what to do! LOL.

These days that are cold and I’m not exercising, makes for long slow days for me, too much time to think. When I am walking I seem to think about things that I like and when I am doing nothing I think about things I don’t like as much.Β  So you see, when you exercise even your thinking is healthier, LOL!

The wind is rocking my RV again today. I don’t mind the wind so much today while it is warmer but later on tonight I will feel its cool bite. Lucky for now it don’t seem to have a lot of dust in it. Lots of places here in the southwest when you have this much wind it will always be full of dust and it is not so bad here for now. It will probably get worst here come about January because there will be so many folks here loosening the ground up with all their RVs and other vehicles. The four-wheelers are the worst, (lots of folks have four-wheelers)Β  they are just dust making machines. But hey, this is just all part of the fun here at Quartzsite, AZ this time of year.

Didn’t get far from the RV today. Sticky Quartz?Β  πŸ™‚

If you didn’t know by the name of the place, there is just tons of common Quartz laying around this place.

I have moved

I have moved but not very far and I am not sure I will stay here very long, kind of near nowhere. Here is my new location, Just down the road a few miles, one good thing, is that there is not so many people here, only 3 or 4 campers. Not sure how long I will stay here, I don’t think it will be much more than a day or two. The river is near by ( as you can see by the map ) and maybe I will stay long enough to do a walk or two over that way πŸ™‚ I can see the river from where I am parked and it looks inviting. I do have 3G internet on Verizon MiFi but I have no over-the-air TV at all, which I can live with.

After my big walk yesterday I may just let today slide by πŸ˜‰ . This sounds like a fine ideal to me because my legs and knees are just a tad sore at me about yesterday’s walk 😯 LOL. (Note; The legs and knees are a tad sore for real too, and feel a bit tired.)

It is getting time to check the house batteries again and I may get that done while I am here.

3pm; Wow, yesterday’s walk must have taken a toll on me, I was thinking maybe I would get over to the river today, but man, I am beat! Maybe tomorrow.

5pm; Well, I could not stand it no longer so I took my walk to the river, and it turned into a good walk seeing as I had to walk through a series of ravines to get there. I’ll go again tomorrow and take another path. The river is very wide where I am at and if you look at my location link you will see it. The walking gives me something to do.

Later.

Settled in

We are all settled in at Blue Water State Park. I will update my location stuff later on, all of it is already in my past location link.

Today was like most of the days of late, sunny morning and cloudy afternoon.

Exercise was off for today and that is OK, l needed a days rest for the knees anyway. I will be back at it tomorrow with a good walk.

Later.
